The Joystiq Free Game Club: Auditorium

Justin McElroy

You've probably seen Auditorium already on numerous other sites, so, since the Joystiq Free Game Club can't be the very first, we're going to be the very best, with the most insightful analysis yet of this melodic, meditative Flash puzzler. Ready? Here goes.

What the hell is going on in this game?

Seriously! OK, so we don't have any problem moving our space ship around, but our light bullets are almost impossible to control. Also, no matter how many bullets hit the little castles, they never explode. If we didn't know better, we'd say they're actually getting bigger! And, come to think of it, they don't even look that much like castles!

Also, the music seems to cut in and out at random, and we're not even sure any of the instruments is an electric guitar. ... Oh, and the first level is called "Hajimemashite." Nice localization, guys!

We give it a 6.5.
